On Sunday, June 30, explore the Hudson Valley by cycling along winding countryside roads with Bike New York, producers of America’s largest cycling event, the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour. The fourth annual Discover Hudson Valley Ride guides bikers north along the scenic Hudson River Valley for a non-competitive bike tour.

Bike New York promotes cycling through education and public events for individuals of all ages. The Discover Hudson Valley Ride offers five route options on winding roads and farmlands throughout Ulster, Dutchess, and Columbia Counties. Routes include 15, 33, 50, 75, and 100-mile options. This bike tour will be the first time that Discover Hudson Valley Ride participants will have the option to challenge themselves with a noncompetitive time trial in designated sections along the 30, 50, 75 and 100-mile routes. The time trial will begin at Gretna Hill Road and will continue for a distance of 1.4 miles.

Each route offers views of the Hudson Valley's scenic landscape as well as notable sites and landmarks, such as the historic Rhinebeck mansions. One memorable rest stop featured in the tour is the 1.28-mile long Walkway Over the Hudson, which provides expansive views of the river and mountains. All routes start and finish at Victor C. Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie.

Bike New York will host a post-ride festival open to the public at Dutchess County Community College with refreshments and live music. Each registered rider gets a free souvenir T-shirt.
